Track Runners Sprint to PALS

As spring season comes to an end, one of the most popular sports, track and field, finishes off strong. The team is one of the largest in the past couple years, over 90 students ready to dominate P.A.L trials today, Friday, April 27th.

The season ended with their last league meet at Mills High School on April 19.

Last Saturday, San Mateo High School’s track and field team hosted their third annual Bearcat Invitational. The Invitational had a great turnout with over 40 high schools attending. Athletes ran their events despite the warm weather and earned personal records.

“There was a lot of good competition. We did pretty well regardless of the heat. Now we’re looking forward to P.A.L trials,” said Tarryn O’Mahoney, a junior.

Tarryn placed  first in the 400 meters event and fifth in the 200 meter event. Tarryn has been an excellent runner, being on the team for the past three years while contributing her extreme, agile quickness.

“It was a great event to bring all the high schools together in a competitive yet fun event,” said Andrew Qare, a junior. “It gives us all a lot of experience, especially for the younger kids.” He placed second in the 4 by 100 meters relay event, seventh in the 200 meters event, and fifteenth in the 100 meters race. Andrew has been on the track and field team for two years now, and has done nothing but benefit the team both on and off the field.

The team is staying strong and preparing for the big event today. The P.A.L. will be held at Terra Nova High School. There are a great number of athletes moving forward to P.A.L. trials, all of them competing hard for a victory.  If the team has qualifying times, then the team will move forward to P.A.L. finals and even qualify for C.C.S. trials and finals.

Come support the track and field team today in the P.A.L. trials for varsity. Victory is crucial if Mateo wants to earn a division title this year, and your support will help the athletic bearcats reach that goal. Keep up the support.
